Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Our moms are special but sometimes we need a little help with Mother’s Day gift ideas. Below is a gift guide for moms of various interests. When appropriate, I included a link to product reviews that I’ve written that I thought would be super for any mom. I hope that this post gives you some great Mother’s Day gift ideas for your mom this year. Spoil her!

Kids Mothers Day Craft Gift

Be sure to have your kids make mom and grandma special gifts and cards for Mother’s Day. These are the items that will be treasured and kept for years to come.  I know that if I woke up to a cute set up of blocks like pictured above, I’d be so happy that I’d tell everyone what my kids (and husband) did for me for Mother’s Day. has a great listing of Mother’s Day gifts that your kids can make at various ages.  Help your kids make a special shirt with fabric paint for mom, write “World’s Greatest Mom” on it and include handprints, hearts, etc.  Younger children can make a photo collage of their favorite memories and put it in a frame. Older kids may want to try their hand at creating a scrapbook gift to honor their mom. For babies and young kids, stamp their handprints in plaster of paris for a keepsake that will stay little long after they’ve grown up.  You also make stepping stones in a similar fashion for her garden. Places like Lowe’s and Home Depot offer Kids Workshops weekly with wooden crafts. Lowe’s is offering a free Mother’sDay Trellis Planter craft this year. Home Depot is offering a Mother’s Day kids workshop to plant a flower or mom or grandma this year.

Mother’s Day Kitchen Gifts

Something fun and unique in the kitchen is great for the mom that loves to cook, bake, or entertain. Don’t get your mom something she needs or something boring or it may not be well received. Something she can get out when company comes over like fancy stemware would be great. A new gadget or appliance that she will enjoy using would be a good Mother’s Day Gift. Here are a few items we’ve posted on the blog that would be good for Mother’s Day.

Spa gifts for Mother’s Day

Check with your local day spas for specials for Mother’s Day. You can usually get a deal on gift certificates. Moms can use the certificates whenever they want for whatever treatment they’d like.  Or create your own spa basket and include super soft towels and washclothes, fuzzy slippers, plush robe, her favorite scented lotions, soaps, salts, and sprays.

Mother’s Day Flowers

It’s been a tradition for several years now in our family to buy our moms the biggest, most beautiful hanging baskets that we can find. I love searching for the most beautiful flowers for my mom. This gift last the entire summer as it blooms and reblooms. Pick a floral gift that suits your mom, fresh bouquet, planter for the deck, hanging flower basket, or artificial silk arrangement.

Mother’s Day Book

If your mom is an avid reader, get her a set of books from her favorite author or include magazines or a magazine subscription in her Mother’s Day gift. You could even make a relaxation basket with books, teas, chocolates, and a journal.

    I am hoping for a pedicure for mother’s day. And actually there’s a salon “school” right down the street from us where students offer services such as pedicures, manicures, etc for a much cheaper price. If anyone is looking for a cheaper way to get these things 🙂
